    Mortal Kombat X #2 is a fun read where we get to explore two characters that we know will appear in the game worth taking interest in. Mortal Kombat X #2 has a few problems, but it does do enough to making you want to pick up that next issue. Read Full Review

    The second issue of MORTAL KOMBAT X didn't have the same one-two-punch of the first issue, but it still was a great read. There's great moments of action and horror as Kittelsen, Soy, and Gandini take the reader on a journey through the vast world of Mortal Kombat. This is a good series for anyone to jump on as you don't need to know much about this franchise to enjoy this series. Do you know Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Raiden exist? Then you'll be fine. MORTAL KOMBAT X continues to entertain and it looks like DC picked up a franchise and has a hit on their hands. Read Full Review

    With this being a prelude to the upcoming game, as of right now I think that it will be more like Silent Hill because I just really don't know what's going on.  We've got multiple stories throughout these first two issues and I'm not really seeing a connecting thread.......... Except for Scorpion's love of seeing children beat the hell out of one another.  I'm sure if you're a Mortal Kombat fan, you could get behind this no problem but I don't know how anyone else is expected to follow this series.

    Visually, this series is fine in a very grim-and-gritty, '90s-era sort of way. That suits the franchise well enough. However, it would be nice to see more clarity to Dexter Soy's pencils, as well as more emotive facial work. And in general, the color palette could use some brightening. Here again, the third chapter in this issue is somewhat better in that regard. Read Full Review
